Four Chicago Bears acquitted themselves just fine in Sunday’s Pro Bowl as the NFC steamrolled to a 62-35 victory over the AFC.   No one embarrassed themselves and the Bears defenders helped limit the AFC to just 35 points.  In Pro Bowl scoring, that’s virtaully a shutout.

Cornerback Charles Tillman, who was named one of the NFC’s captains contributed 3 tackles and had a patented ball punch, though AJ Greene’s forward progress was deemed stopped.  Peanut also got toasted on a couple of TD’s, but in the Pro Bowl, who hasn’t been torched.  Tim Jennings added 4 tackles from the other starting cornerback spot while defensive end Julius Peppers made his presence felt with a couple of sacks to go along with three tackles.  Henry Melton did not show up in the box score, though I did see him play when I peeked in on the game.
